Japanese retailer lists MSI GeForce RTX 3090 Ti Suprim with an eye-watering price tag
NVIDIA announced the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti at CES 2022. Aside from some TFLOP numbers, the company didn’t provide any detailed technical information about the card at the time. Similarly, we also didn’t get any official price tag for NVIDIA’s yet-to-be-released BF-GPU. While we don’t have any MSRP numbers for the RTX 3090 Ti, the price tag for cards from AIB partners have begun to leak out.
Previously, we reported that an AIB RTX 3090 Ti was listed for over US$3,000 by a Vietnamese retailer. Now, according to a listing first noticed by Twitter leaker momomo_us, Rakuten Japan has listed an MSI GeForce RTX 3090 Ti Suprim X 24G up on its site for backorder for a staggering 633,773 yen which comes out to be US$5,518.42. To put this into perspective, the GeForce RTX 3090 has an MSRP of US$1,499. This makes the MSI RTX 3090 Ti Suprim X 24G over 3.5X more expensive than the vanilla RTX 3090.
When it comes to the GPU itself, leaks put the MSI RTX 3090 Ti Suprim’s boost clock to be 1,880 MHz for Gaming and Silent and 1,900 MHz for the Extreme mode clock. However, the increased clocks come at a cost as the RTX 3090 Ti Suprim allegedly has a TDP of 480 W.
